Subject[GIT PULL] x86/microcode updates for 4.21
Hi Linus,

please pull the latest x86-microcode-for-linus tree from:

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip.git x86-microcode-for-linus


This update contains work started by Maciej to make the microcode
container verification more robust against all kinds of corruption and
also unify verification paths between early and late loading.

The result is a set of verification routines which validate the
microcode blobs before loading it on the CPU. In addition, the code is a
lot more streamlined and unified.

In the process, some of the aspects of patch handling and loading were
simplified.

All provided by Maciej S. Szmigiero and Borislav Petkov.

Thanks,
Boris.
